Hello ladies my name is Mimi Vin Rouge, the 1st Burlesque Chair Dance Instructor on the Isle of Wight!
On the 28th April 2018 I held my very first ‘Burlesque Ball’ on the Isle of Wight, this involved 3 groups of ladies performing 3 different BCD TM routines, a drag artist hosting….’Miss Jacqui Swallows’, a disco and a charity raffle raising just over £300 for Parkinson’s UK and one of our dancers sang for us.
Can I just point out that these ladies have only been dancing with BCD TM for a few months and Marilyn our very own Miss BCD TM Isle of Wight who performed all 3 routines is 70 years young! This lady is
amazeballs and we all love her to bits…..no excuses not to go to class if Marilyn can make it every week and she even came back early from her weekend on the Mainland to attend rehearsals…now that’s commitment for you. I presented Marilyn with her Tiara and sash, it was very emotional to say the least.
The ladies on the Isle of Wight are amazing…the level of enthusiasm and motivation for class is fabulous and I feel so proud to be the one to share the Burlesque Chair Dance love on such a beautiful Island….and now we have 1 more instructor to share even more love, ‘Misty Lady’ only went and passed her instructors course on Saturday so now we have more classes for the ladies of the Isle of Wight to attend….watch out Ventnor!
I am so proud of each and every one of my ladies who performed on the night, they really stepped out of their comfort zone and knocked everyone dead with their amazing performances, the roof was most certainly raised and the applaud from the audience was immense, the ladies asked ‘when can we do it again??’ as soon as they came off stage, they have got the bug now there’s no stopping them. Hope to see lots of new faces at Burlesque Chair Dance classes in Newport, Ryde and now Ventnor! Lots of love Mimi Vin Rouge xxx
